India will take on Sri Lanka in a World Cup match in Mumbai on 2 November. Having beaten the likes of Australia and New Zealand, India will not be unduly worried. Prior to the World Cup, India thrashed Sri Lanka in the Asia Cup final. Sri Lanka would be motivated by the need for revenge. If Sri Lanka can convert that sentiment into performance on the field of play, the match could prove very interesting.

Weather and Pitch Report
On 2 November, Mumbai will have sunny weather with low humidity. The temperature will vary between 34 degrees Celsius in the daytime and 24 degrees at night.
The wicket at Mumbai’s Wankhede stadium is batting friendly. The wicket gets slower as the match wears. So, the toss winning captain may choose to bat first.
India vs Sri Lanka Today Prediction: India to Win
India have gone from strength to strength. They appear unbeatable. The main worry for the Indian team management would be to avoid peaking too early before the knockouts. To that end, India might want to rest some of their key players.
With only four players on the bench, India have few options. They could be tempted to play Suryakumar Yadav and Ashwin in place of Ishan Kishan and M Shami. India would want to stay focused and not give in to complacency. Rohit Sharma would be keen to carry his team to the semi-finals without losing a single match.
After a brilliant performance against England, Sri Lanka would want to believe that they can upset the tournament favourites. Sri Lanka’s batting has promised much without reaching its potential. SL are over-reliant on a few batters such as Mendis, Asalanka, and Samarawickrama. They would want the other batters to justify their places in the squad. The inclusion of the experienced Mathews proved a positive step versus England. Mathews’ performance could be key to Sri Lanka’s fortunes against India.
Among the bowlers, Kumara and Rajitha discovered form against England. Mathews chipped in with a few useful wickets. Madhushanka has bowled consistently well throughout the competition. Among the spinners, Theekshana has done relatively well, while De Silva and Wellalage have disappointed. On the whole, Sri Lanka have given away too many runs in most matches.
The palpable gap in quality between the teams gives India the edge in the upcoming match on 2 November.
